I got up today at 6:10 to catch the train from Edinburgh to London at 7:30. I am a pessimist, I think I will get a puncture or get caught in traffic. Unfortunately I got into a dream listening to the radio and before I knew it it was 7:00. I flung everything onto the bike and raced across town from corstorphine to the Waverley station. Had a front wheel skid crossing the tram lines on Princes street at Waverley Bridge. Got to the train with 5minutes to spare. I don't ever want to leave it that late again. Got through London to Amersham via Marylebone station. Getting to Cornwall by car tomorrow.
